If its going to happen yes we need to make them work for it, to show them up for having in unbelievable power over the governing bodies. Clubs need to be shown the corruption at work here 

Should be shown the reports on them allowing children to be fucked up the arse.

Good to see Partick Thistle say out loud the SPFL have openly attempted to bribe them. 

The disbandment of the SPFL must be looked at ASAP.

Where’s this from  bud?

UEFA are telling clubs don't decide anything yet just hold off so I don't know why Scotland is determined to decide everything at the start of April. 

Exactly. Its a time to dish out the cash, then pause. Use the tme to consider what is the best way forward. Null and void should not be off the table either.

When he mentions the message re: Partick Thistle, I wonder if he means the SPFL statement gave them the impression the message was "vote this through and get your cash" or if they have received veiled threats from the SPFL prior to voting?

Surely, if it's the latter, lawyers will have a field day?

https://spfl.co.uk/news/board-update-on-Rangers-resolution

The SPFL Board received a requisition from Rangers, supported by two other clubs, that the Board must issue a further resolution to members.  This resolution sought to compel the SPFL to lend money to all 42 Clubs.

The Board took legal advice from a leading QC on the proposed resolution.  By law, the members of a private company can require their Board to circulate a resolution, unless such resolution would be ineffective if passed. 

The clear and unequivocal legal advice received by the SPFL is that the resolution received from Rangers is ineffective in terms of company law. As a result, the Board determined this morning that it cannot be circulated to members.

We have seen a statement from Rangers that they “sought comment from the SPFL Executive on several occasions yesterday, to ensure [their] resolution was deemed competent”.  For the avoidance of doubt, only at 10.18pm yesterday did the SPFL’s lawyer receive an email from Rangers seeking advice on the content of their resolution, which was put before the SPFL Board first thing this morning.

Rangers have expressed a desire to submit a further resolution.  The SPFL’s lawyers will work with Rangers, as they will with any other member club, who wishes to put forward a resolution.  The offer to help clubs with the drafting of their resolutions was made during the divisional conference calls on Wednesday.  Rangers chose to proceed without seeking that help, with the result that their resolution was ineffective.

A spokesman said: “These are extremely difficult times for the people of Scotland and for every club in the land.

“The SPFL Board has worked hard to propose a clear way of quickly delivering much-needed fee payments to the 30 clubs in the Ladbrokes Championship, League 1 and League 2. 

“The alternative is further weeks, and possibly months, of uncertainty and financial hardship for dozens of clubs which are desperately looking for a way to survive.”

I have maintained all along that money should be distributed equally among all clubs. Fine points can be sorted later.

Is there more to it than 1 club demanding the title so they get the winners spoils ? I doubt it.

I think the total monies due to the Premier League should be distributed evenly in the Prem.

The monies due in the Championship should be evenly distributed amongst the Championship clubs.

And the same in both Leagues 1 and 2.

Lets help all the clubs out.

I don’t expect every club to be happy with that but the ones that aren’t would have a cheek to moan about uneven money distribution in football ever again. 👍

In 2008 they used the death of 1 man to manipulate the league.

In 2020 they’re using the death of thousands to manipulate the league.

A club like no other indeed.

I said it at the time and still baffled to this day how (with all due respect to O'Donnell) can be too traumatised to play us (with Boruc, McGeady and Nakamura all either injured or suspended), an ex squad player of theirs with Motherwell playing their next game after his death ...... and when Tommy Burns a favourite son of thiers and club legend died, they just had to play on next game and try to win the league "for Tommy"

As you say, a club like no other.

Another chapter of disgrace for that vile club.
